Population Health Led Strategic Workforce Planning Masterclass
This masterclass will explore how a strategic approach to workforce planning can address current and future needs in primary and community settings. Population health including demographic change over time and the impact of Covid 19 is the starting point for understanding the kind of workforce that is needed. The session will focus on key principles of a population health led approach to workforce planning in primary and community care. Examples of how this approach has been applied elsewhere will be shared and there will be opportunities for participants to engage in short exercises to enhance the learning experience. A toolkit to do workforce modelling will be presented in the form of a slide deck which can be distributed to interested parties and will set out similar material in a more detailed way.
The approach used by the Whole Systems Partnership is rooted in local population health needs and is framed in the language of skill-mix and the delivery of care functions that meet the needs of distinct people groups within a given geographical area. The approach has been applied at all levels from a local GP Practice to an ICS and has helped local partners to identify recruitment and staff development priorities that are rooted in future health needs and transformed services.
At the end of the session participants will have:
- A greater understanding of population health segmentation as it applies to strategic workforce planning
- An understanding of how a strategic workforce planning framework can be used to set out an effective workforce plan for the future
- Tools that can be used to do strategic workforce planning
